Announcing a new approach to our popular monthly special offers
With each passing month, it seems to only get more difficult to consistently accumulate large groups of unique and interesting products to offer through our monthly specials program. As such, we have been forced to modify our approach, and to redefine expectations for this popular program moving forward. Instead of the large multi-thousand coin tranches you’re likely used to seeing, we will be offering much smaller batches (typically 100 coins or less), of historically significant and rarely seen items, that are, most importantly, still priced well below our nearest competitor. We will then pair these items of interest with a larger bulk group of discounted ‘bullion-type' coins for our accumulation-minded buyers.
February Special Offer
A czar, a king, an emperor, an eagle. . . .and a raffle
So without further adieu, and for the first iteration of our new specials program, we are pleased to present our February offer. This month’s offer is highlighted by small batches of Russia 5 and 10 Roubles, British Sovereigns Canadan ‘C’ Mint and French Napoleon I 20 Franc gold coins. For our ‘bullion-type’ inclusion, we are pairing these items of interest with a larger tranche (150 coins) of nicely discounted one ounce modern American Eagles.
RAFFLE: We have decided to make the popular raffle featured in the past a monthly mainstay. Each month, buyers investing $2500 or more in that month’s special will be entered into that month’s raffle, to be held at the end of each month, or when a particular offer has sold out. Each month will feature a different incentive, or ‘prize’, with this month's lucky winner taking home an exquisite Russia 5 Rouble graded Mint State 66 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Approximate value: $350.
Additional raffle tickets will be awarded for investments in excess of $25,000 and $50,000, but no entry will have more than three tickets in play, giving everyone who participates a reasonable chance to win, yet offering some added incentive to those who may find a particular offer especially enticing.
Minted 1898 - 1911
Actual Gold Content: .2489 troy ounce
Some of the rarest and most sought after historic gold coins in existence, Russian Roubles are virtually never seen in the market, especially in any kind of quantity. Competing dealers have 10 Roubles priced north of $450, and 5 Roubles at roughly $300 a piece, which also reflects NGC’s suggested retail pricing (see NCG price on 10 Roubles and 5 Roubles). Our price of roughly $375 on the 10 Roubles (XF/AU - slightly circulated condition), and $250 on the 5 Roubles (BU-Uncirculated Condition) is an absolute steal compared to other similar offers.
British Sovereign (Canadian Mint)
The rarest of the mint-marked Sovereigns, coins minted in Ottawa bearing the ‘C’ mint mark and George V’s visage catalogue with a total mintage of just 570,000 pieces from 1911 to 1919. NGC suggests a retail price of approximately $450 for coins in similar Brilliant Uncirculated condition as those offered here making our price of roughly $350/coin a tremendous value. It should be noted as well that we are offering these coins for a mere $10 more per coin than a common Uncirculated British Sovereign.
Featuring the visage of perhaps the most historically significant monarch of 19th Century Europe, Napoleon I 20 Francs are a must have for both history buffs and historic gold coin owners alike. Accordingly, groups surface very rarely and are often prohibitively expensive. NGC suggests a retail value in heavily circulated VF condition at an impressive $345/coin. Step up a grade to that of those offered here (XF/AU) and the suggested retail is a whopping $475 per coin, which equates to double the underlying gold value! Moreover, our nearest competition is pricing similar coins at $350 a piece. Such comparisons make our price of roughly $295/coin a truly great deal.
For our modern bullion buyers, we picked up a small group of one troy ounce gold eagles (150 pieces) at a nice little discount (discounts are quite hard to come by with this kind of stuff). Our price on this batch of 4.25% over spot gold is sure to beat any other national dealer. Shipping/handling and insurance will be handled differently here than on the other items listed, with free delivery occurring for orders of 20 ounces or more. Smaller orders will be charged a $35 flat shipping fee.
